Partnering with the WBI
By partnering with the Well-Being Index, these organizations have joined hundreds of hospitals, institutions, and medical schools worldwide in taking the initiative to fight against distress. Their providers and students will now have the opportunity to anonymously track their well-being over time, compare their results to peers’ and national averages, provide feedback, and receive customized local and national resources.
We are excited to continue to work with these partners to foster well-being and reduce the negative consequences that come with distress.
